From years of study, management, building websites & social media, & consulting I've discovered one underlying truth:
We are always trying to influence someone's behaviour.
Regardless of if that's online or on the shop floor, our behaviour is based in our psychology.
I'm here to help business owners use psychology to build better client relationships, grow their business, and have it as their business edge.
Kara is calm, patient & helpful
You were calm , patient and helped me understand where I stood and which direction I wanted to go in.
Kara helped me understand my mindset block which gave me a big A-ha moment!
I had been trying stuff that did not work!
Kara’s calm composed and happy disposition helps the client feel comfortable and open up. She gives the client the space to think and grow!
Kara went right back to basics with us as we were a start up business. She worked with us to make sure the foundations were set up in a way that gave us a platform to move forward in a productive way.
We felt like we were failing ourselves and our business as we were so overwhelmed with working in the business knowing full well we should be dedicating sometime to working on the business. Kara talked us through how to set achievable goals, implement them and review them.
If burying our heads in the sand equates to trying somethings else then - Yes we tried other things. We were a start up business with very little practical idea about operating a business. We had an idea about things we should be doing but no experience or real understanding of what should happen and when it should happen.
Two words - Direction and accountability. Kara worked with us in the beginning to get an understanding of what we did, and how we went about it. She then guided us into more coherent way of operating, giving us the ability to set the goals we want to achieve, and following up on these, making us accountable for the decisions and goals we had made. She is teaching us how to grow as business owners and to be comfortable in our capabilities as we stretch ourselves and our mindsets. Kara is one of the most valuable assets in our business.
That she was able to cut through the clutter of my numerous thoughts and ideas and bring clarity to the situation.
I was in overwhelm - with so many thoughts about my messaging, market and how to name and use the numerous social media accounts I had in different names - that I was stuck in analysis paralysis. I was frustrated because I was energised to take action, but had no clear path forward. Within minutes she was able to pull out the important parts of what was there and help me reassemble them in a clear and usable way. The clear path appeared! Instant relief and excitement! Honestly, there were even tears...(on my end!).
While, we may be great at helping others get clarity, it is often hard to take yourself through the process objectively. Kara's experience came through in guiding me through the process, in understanding what was important and in recommending steps forward.
That she was able to bring clarity AND recommend clear steps forward.
